COLUMBIA, Mo. – The Missouri 4-H Foundation is awarding 70 scholarships totaling $95,000 to Missouri 4-H youths to help further their educations.

“We are thrilled to support these exceptional young people as they continue their educational journeys,” said Rachel Augustine, director of the Missouri 4-H Foundation. “Their dedication to 4-H and their communities is inspiring, and we are confident they will continue to achieve great things in their future endeavors.”

The 2024 scholarship recipients have demonstrated exceptional leadership, community service and academic achievements, said Augustine. These scholarships will assist them in pursuing degrees in fields such as agriculture, science, technology, engineering, math and more.

“These scholarships are more than just financial assistance; it’s a recognition of the hard work and dedication of our 4-H members,” said Lupita Fabregas, senior program director of the University of Missouri Extension 4-H Center for Youth Development. “We are proud of our 4-H youth and grateful to the Foundation and its donors for investing in the future leaders of our state and nation.”
